Cat Stuck in Wall Waves Paw for Help: Story Shows the Ability of Cats to Reason and Think

Yes, there are still many out there that claim that all actions beyond human actions are instinctual. Well, I have bytes and bytes of information that proves otherwise. Here is another example. If purely instinctual the cat likely wouldn’t’ have equated a hole with freedom. And the voices of people with help.

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A cat stuck in a wall at a house under construction initiated his rescue when he caught the attention of a prospective buyer by meowing and waving his paw out a small hole. The cat had gotten stuck behind the wall but found a gap between a gas pipe and the wall board where he could stick out his paw. He was spotted Saturday by someone touring the house.

Collierville Animal Services supervisor Nina Wingfield said she heard a "hoarse meow" after she arrived at the house.

"When he knew we were there, it was a very hoarse, frantic meow," she said.

Wingfield freed the feline by cutting away the wall board with a knife.

"He had his paw out touching - not clawing - the whole time, like he was saying 'Come on! Come on,'" Wingfield said.

She thinks the cat, who had been stuck without food long enough for his ribs to be showing, is a lost pet. The owners have until Friday to come forward and claim him before he will be offered for adoption to someone else.

In the meantime, the animal shelter is calling him by a new name: Wally.
